Nuenen is a small city near Eindhoven with a nice center and living and industrial area.
Seems a German tribe lived here around the 8th. century (archeological objects were found from this period)

a friend of mine lives here and has his own petshop in the center, as a child we used to bike to Nuenen to go to the fair every year.
Over the last 20 years the city went bigger and more industrial.

Nuenen is also know because of Vincent van Gogh, his parents lived here and he stayed with them out of poverty from 1883-1885.
